Title: Herbivore-induced shifts in carbon and nitrogen allocation in red oak seedlings
Author: Frost, Christopher J.; Hunter, Mark D.;
Source: New Phytologist (2008)
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: A dual-isotope, microcosm experiment was conducted with Quercus rubra (red oak) seedlings to test the hypothesis that foliar herbivory would increase belowground carbon allocation (BCA), carbon (C) rhizodeposition and nitrogen (N) uptake. Plant BCA links soil ecosystems to aboveground processes and can be affected by insect herbivores, though the extent of herbivore influences on BCA is not well understood in woody plants.
Keywords: carbon allocation, herbivory, nitrogen allocation, Orgyia leucostigma (white marked tussock moth), Quercus rubra (red oak), rhizodeposition, stable isotopes.
